Distance Consulting Services
Tree House Consulting by phone or email
When the distance is great and/or the budget for the tree house is small, we can help you from our office. We will ask for:
- photos of your trees from different angles.
- measurements of the trees – see our layout page.
- a brief description of how much help you want.
Costs for Distance Consulting
Everyone needs a custom level of assistance, so we charge per hour. Our tree house consulting rate is $150 per hour (call for engagements longer than one day). For initial tree house or platform design, it usually takes 1 to 4 hours to give you enough help to do a good job on your own. But this does depend on the complexity of your plan and your knowledge and skills.
Other Pre-Construction Costs:
Depending on your specific situation and goals, you may want to proceed with designing a tree house or bringing others in for more information. Most designers, engineers, and consulting arborists will charge $100 to $275 per hour. All of these steps are not always necessary, and we will help explain the risks & benefits of each.
